Public Health Teams Provide Relief Post Severe Weather
Saturday, October 20, 2018

Port of Spain, 20th October, 2018: In support of the national response to the severe weather, the Ministry of Health and the Regional Health Authorities have activated their emergency operations. Health teams are working as part of the relief efforts coordinated by the National Emergency Operations Centre to bring relief to affected residents.

Both the La Horquetta Health Center and the Arouca Health Centre have been activated as advanced medical posts.

This was done to proactively prepare for the anticipated urgent medical needs of persons in the surrounding areas. Expanded services are now available at these Health Centres and staff are already on site and prepared for a surge in the demand for health care from the public, given the extreme flooding in communities in the area.

Members of the public are strongly advised to visit these facilities only if urgent health care is needed so that resources can be directed to persons who are most in need at this time.

The Arouca Health Centre is located at:Corner George Street and Golden Grove Road, Arouca

The La Horquetta Health Center located at:Arthur Murray Crescent, La Horquetta Phase III
